Churches are opening in Chile
After months of strict quarantine, churches in Chile are being allowed to SLOWLY reopen. The
government has presented a five-step plan to reopen the country. Several of our churches have entered
the initial stages of the plan. On September 13th, Liberty Baptist Church in Parral was our first church
allowed to hold Sunday services. Minutes before the service began, Maria walked through the front doors.
She heard the music and was curious about the church’s teachings. Soon after, the young Chilean
pastor took God’s Word and led Maria to Christ! Someone was saved on Liberty’s first service back!
Record attendance at the Chile Training Center
This fall semester God has blessed with more students than ever. At the time of writing this letter nearly 70 students are signed up to train with us for ministry! One of those is our daughter Katherine. She will be moving back to the states at the end of the year to study at the Our Generation Training Center at our home church in Georgia. Until then, she is taking several classes at our Bible college in Chile.
New Birth Baptist Church (pictured to the right) is one of many churches that now dot the map of Santiago. God is using our graduates to lead congregations like this one. Thank you for praying and giving to make this
Exciting Announcement: Latin America Director
Since 2001, Lori and I have served as church planting missionaries to Chile. God is blessing like never
before with continued open doors to plant churches and train men and women for ministry. In addition to
leading the ministry in Chile, God has recently given me the opportunity to serve as the Latin America
Director for Vision Baptist Missions. This role will allow me to serve, encourage, and support other church
planters throughout Central and South America. I am humbled and honored to be considered for this
This new role will change little in our ministry in Chile. Our family will continue to live on the field. I will continue to lead the Chile Training Center, train nationals, and plant churches in Chile. This new
responsibility will allow our scope of influence to expand from Chile’s borders to all of Latin America. Pray for
us that God will give us wisdom and that we may be faithful to steward these responsibilities.
